Recipe: DIY Lunchables with Salami & Cheese

We love making our own lunchboxes with healthy ingredients you can find at the store or in your garden.

1 lunchbox plus snack

1 ounce unprocessed cheese
1-2 ounces uncured salami
some gluten free, low salt rice crackers (or any crackers you wish)
leafy salad greens
cut & cleaned veggies
fresh fruit or homemade apple sauce
homemade granola or muffins

Choose a bento box and arrange the ingredients so they each have their own compartment.

We do not eat salami too frequently. It is part of our mindfully balanced meal plan. You can find it cured or uncured if you are looking for it. Even meats labeled as “uncured” are still “cured” with natural nitrates found in sources such as beets, sugar, celery and sea salt. Instead of salami you could use any other meat, poultry or protein source you desire. Watching your fats? Go with a low-fat cheese instead of a fuller fat one.
